Author of:  Up Tunket Road:  The Education of a Modern Homesteader

“… if ever homesteading could be relevant, it is now. After all, so much of what homesteading can engender – sustainability values, practical living skills, and appropriate technologies – is critically important in helping to work our way through many of our current ecological and cultural problems.  Ultimately, what is not pioneered and adopted in our own households is unlikely to become either a cultural norm or sound public policy.”
